“The Life and Death of an Illegal Immigrant”
Timothy Dixon, J.D., associate professor and coordinator of history/politics
Thursday, Nov. 15
Alvin Sherman Library | Second Floor Gallery
This lecture will include a discussion of the paths taken by undocumented immigrants entering the country and the direction their lives take in the United States. Dixon will examine immigrants from various regions and present a composite of the “typical” undocumented immigrant life, including employment, living circumstances, and relations between illegal immigrants and the various levels of government with which they come into contact. To conclude, the talk will look at recent changes in immigration laws and their impact on the lives of recent and longtime undocumented residents.
